Trans Masc Connection Coaching Group
Looking for a safe and confidential space to connect with other trans masculine guys? This 8 week virtual group is designed for trans men by a trans man. You will get to particpate in the ways that feel good to you and talk about the things that are important to you.
Aging while trans is a really specific experience. There are times when you are simultaneously experiencing the world as an man while internally experiencing things for the first time. Right now trans people are under attack and it can be a lot to sit with alone. This group is designed to facilitate connection, conversation, and help us all build spaces where we can feel safe and fully be ourselves.
This group is designed by a trans man for trans-masculine adults who want to connect with other trans men.
For folks newer to transition and folks with more years under their belts.
For trans masc people of all sexual orientations and sexual interests.
For people over age 30.
For both binary and non-binary trans-masculine people.
For guys in relationships and guys who are single.
For guys post surgery, pre surgery, and those not intersted in surgery.
This group is not a therapy group or a trauma processing group. If either of those are things you're looking for please let me know and I'll connect you to other providers.

Hello! I am a white queer trans man, therapist, coach, and sexuality educator. I've been working in the field of trans health and sexual health for 20 years. I got my start as a sexuality educator for Planned Parenthood in my early 20's where I got to learn about reproductive rights, gender identity, sexual rights, and sexual pleasure. My favorite part of that job were the sex toy workshops I provided to college dorms.
In my 20's I identified as a dyke and then as genderqueer. I physically transitioned in 2005 and somewhere along the line my gender felt more binary. I now identify as a queer trans man and use he and him pronouns.
I went to graduate school for social work so that I could support my trans and queer commmity. I had the opporutnity to work for Mazzoni Center and The Attic Youth Center, both LGBTQ focused organizations. I currently have my own practice where I provide therapy and coaching to mostlys queer and trans clients. In 2019 I co-authored the book Sex Therapy with Erotically Marginalized Clients: Nine Principles of Support. I also teach other health care providers about working with trans and queer communities through my work at Widener University and the California Institute for Intregal Studies.
As a white person it is my responsiblity to challenge and end white supremacy. I am actively engaged in anti-racist learning and strive to create spaces that feel as safe as possible for BIPOC participants.
